About

My given name is Sofia Ajram. I come from the Third Planet. I am fastened to the sensuous of the inner universe. I want to share with you the galaxies projected within and without: absolute space and absolute time. I want to share with you the stars contained by the new souls of my race, humanity, in its infancy. Let me show you something electromagnetic. Let me take you to the place where Their dreamscapes and Our reality exchange glances. Let me help you remember.
